Berkey Water Filters - Why It's Worth Every Penny

by Cherry May April 05, 2019 3 min read

If you love chasing adventures, then water is your best friend. Ensuring that you are well-hydrated before and during any strenuous activity is essential in maintaining your body’s strength, power, and endurance. Water doesn't only quench your thirst but replenishes your electrolytes as well. With these things in mind, choosing the most dependable water filter is such an important task.

That is why the Berkey Water Filter is here. To offer you water you can trust. Berkey Water Filter aims to provide you with safe, clean and tasty water 24/7.

But what sets Berkey apart?

Here are the 8 things to know about Berkey:


-Berkey is now the go-to water filter of even the pickiest water connoisseur. The taste of your water will definitely be improved when using Berkey. In fact, some customers now prefer to bring water bottles with their Berkey water in it whenever they go out since water from restaurants or stores just won’t cut it.


-Depending on the size of your family, or on how much water you drink in a day, Berkey can help you out. They have 6 different sizes for you to choose from. Berkey Water Filters also do not take a lot of space. You can set them up on your sink, countertops or even on your dining table for easier access.



    -One of the most distinctive features of Berkey is their own Carbon Composite Filters, which they callBlack Berkey®. TheBlack Berkey® can remove up to 203 different contaminants. Your Berkey would usually have 2Black Berkey® Filters but you can always opt to buy two more since your Berkey Water Filters can accommodate up to 4 Black Berkeys. In addition, these carbon filters are quite durable. Each carbon filter can be used for 3,000 gallons of water. Imagine not having the need to replace them every few months or so.


      -In order to be considered as a Purification System, strict water purifier standard has to be met. Well, not only did Berkey meet this standard but went beyond it. Berkey Purifiers far surpass this standard and actually remove 99.9999999% known as a log 9 reduction, when dealing with pathogenic bacteria. This distinction is what makes Berkey the only certifiable gravity flow water purification system.

      -The first line of defense is that the Berkey purification elements are composed of a formulation of more than six different media types, all constructed into a very compact matrix containing millions of microscopic pores. These pores are so minute that they produce what we refer to as a torturous path that pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, sediment, and sedimentary minerals must travel through. These paths are so small that these pollutants physically cannot pass through them and become trapped eliminating them from your drinking water this is known as microfiltration.



        -Aside from removing contaminants, we also have to consider reducing Fluoride and Arsenic from our drinking water.The Berkey water filter fluoride reduction elements work by adding the ability to remove these two. When threaded directly onto the Black Berkey® purification elements they become an effective way to take control of targeted harmful contaminants in your drinking water. These fluoride water filters work as a post filter to the Black Berkey and are compatible with all Berkey water filter systems.


          -Let’s face it. A lot of us get easily intimidated by setting up or assembling different things. Building an Ikea furniture is even traumatic at times. With Berkey, that is not the case. They made sure to include sufficient manuals and guides to help you perfectly set-up your water filter. You can also refer to tons of YouTube videos for help as Berkey is very much reviewed by a lot of survival, RV, and other channels.


            -One of the reasons why most people prefer the Berkey is because it doesn't need power for it to work. Its gravity flow system makes it such a perfect companion for the traveling families out there. In fact, Berkey is the favorite choice of RV communities. Having the Berkey around when going across the country ensures safe and tasty water no matter where you plan on staying.

            -This feature also impressed our preppers out there. For those who are seriously into survival preparation, knowing that you can have clean drinking water even if the power grid is out, gives you an added sense of security.

            Great tasting, safe and clean water. Isn't that perfect? With your purchase, you are not only buying Berkey Water Filters but you are also buying your peace of mind.
